drank Nuit D'hiver by George Cannon

Another tea from earlier today – this one as a cold brew. Interesting blend of fruitiness, blending with vanilla. I can’t decide if i like this better hot or cold, but both are pretty darn tasty, especially if you’re looking for something a little different than the usual fruit tea.

noms. cold brew of this tonight – gotta keep drinking fluids and there’s only so much water i can handle before i need a little flavour. I really enjoy this one. it’s tart blackberries and with a teeeny bit of sugar the flavour really pops!

cold brew of this one because dear god it’s hot and humid today! i remember almost nothing about this one besides gulping it down and loving the sweet/sour of it.

drank Honey, I Dew by DAVIDsTEA

I had this one as a free sample when i popped in to David’s tea to try and find some sale stuff a friend is looking for. White teas generally aren’t my favourite but this one was fairly nice as a gold brew. It’s not lupicia’s golden honey dew, but this makes a decent replacement for it if you don’t have easy access to lupicia. :) Over all a nice blend and pretty close on the flavouring :)

bumping up the rating on this one a little. The more i drink it, the more it grows on me. It’s not one of those bold in your face sort of teas…just a soft, smooth, delicious cup.

drank Qimen by Joseph Wesley Black Tea

started the day out earlier this morning with this one. As i added two teas to my cupboard yesterday, i’m trying to find a way to get those spaces back pronto! ihad just enough of this one left to enjoy it this morning and save a cup’s worth for terri :) yay for tea sharing. I quite enjoyed having this one in my cupboard but i’m glad i still have the other JW teas to drink now that this one is all gone. :(

drank Pina Colada by Tealish

this was the other tea that i picked up yesterday – i really shouldn’t be buying tea but there’s a gap in my cupboard so i allowed myself this treat – especially since i was hoping it would be at least sort of like the version from tea gswendner that i adore. I don’t think i’ll be in chicago again soon, so i need an alternative that doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg. Verdict on this one? It’s “close enough” but if i had both in front of me, i’d go with the one from TeaG. That being said, this is still lovely and i’ll enjoy it a bunch!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
